Proskauer litigator Ralph Ferrara spoke last week on real-world crisis management – “event horizons and black holes” – at PLI’s 46th Annual Securities Regulation Institute in New York. Recently named to the inaugural class of the Securities Docket’s Enforcement Hall of Fame, Mr. Ferrara presented a complex hypothetical and discussed financial statement disclosure litigation and the governance implications it posed. Mr. Ferrara’s panel also considered how boards should approach their oversight of corporate responses to governmental inquiries, shareholder activists, and shareholder demands and class actions.
